The incredible Chypre Palatin-MDCI Nothing else really comes close.
It was a calculated risk. Unfortunately, I'm bad at math.

Dior Bois D'argent - Amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Ambra Di Luna Ramon Monegal for me, GIT and Aventus for hubs..lol..wish there was less pineapple in AV though! Smoky pineapple, not appealing much, lol..literally thought of a smoker, someone get some ham to go with that, lol. One my hubs got complimented on, Chene by SL. Not a huge fan myself but don't entirely dislike it either!

Mont Blanc Legend mainly because it's what started me on this crazy journey!!
"We don't fail because we aim too high and miss, but because we aim too low and hit" - Les Brown
"When you're all alone, when no one is watching, and there's no one around to impress, that is who you are" - Greg Laurie
I would go with Aventus - I started collecting fragrance only this year and what got me into this is Aventus. this is my most worn and complimented. Obvious choice for me
Vetyverio by Diptyque
Cafe Rose. I know the Jardin Noir series wasn't received especially well, but I really loved this one.
Of course Chypre Palatin is wonderful too.
Current Top Five:
1. Bois des Iles--Chanel
2. George Sand--Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier
3. L'Ame Soeur--Divine
4. Violet Blonde--Tom Ford
5. Santal Blush--Tom Ford
New to me this year and most worn was Eau de Guerlain
I would choose Mitsouko as it started my adventure in unisex/feminine fragrances and was the first one I wore in public.
I'm not OLD...I'm VINTAGE!
Encens Mythique d'Orient would be the standout 2012 release for me, although Songe d'un Bois d'Ete and Mito are equally intriguing and original creations.
Other notables IMHO - Myrrhe et Delires, Interlude Man, Opus VI & Seville a l'Aube.
Of those launched in 2012:
Songe d'un Bois d'Ete
Oud (Maison Francis Kurkdjian)
Hard to limit it to one....so here is two from me:
Oud - Maison Francis Kurkdjian
Sunday Cologne - Byredo
Alexandria ~ Xerjoff.... instantly went into my top 3
Mancera Sand Aoud
For Sale or Swap: Terre D'Hermes
